1poundbaby carrots or 1 pound peeled carrots, chopped
½cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cupgranulated sugar
3large eggs, beaten
Place the carrots in a pot, cover with water, bring to a boil, then turn the heat down to medium and cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes.
Drain the carrots and place half in a blender. Place on top of the carrots the stick of butter then top with the remaining carrots.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish or cast-iron skillet.
When the butter has melted and the carrots have stopped steaming, add to the blender the flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg, vanilla, and eggs. Puree all the ingredients in the blender until fluffy and smooth, then pour into the prepared dish.
Bake uncovered for 50-55 minutes or until the casserole is puffed and the top is lightly browned. Serve warm, though it’s also good at room temperature or even cold.
